Computed tomography targets for efficient guidance of catheter ablation in ventricular tachycardia

Project description

Novel 3D image-processing technology locates VT ablation targets

Patients at risk of ventricular tachycardia (VT) commonly undergo catheter ablation in the areas of myocardial scars responsible for arrhythmias. The initial phase of the intervention involves the intra-cardiac insertion of a mapping catheter which is invasive, often inaccurate and time-consuming. 3D cardiac imaging providing detailed structural information on ablation targets could overcome the shortcomings of this standard procedure. A recently developed novel 3D image-processing technology allows cardiologists to locate VT ablation targets and guide ablation procedures in a non-invasive, highly precise and rapid manner using widely available cardiac CT images. The EU-funded MAP-IN-HEART project will investigate the technical and economical feasibility of the innovative approach by assessing its efficacy and safety in a limited clinical study.
